My Thoughts:

Spoiler
This theme is on point because this is the perfect morning-time (and any time) mask. I'm pretty sure I have posted about it before but the theme was right and I happened to use it in the morning this week, how much more could the stars align? I don't know if it's just me, but I usually prefer to use sheet masks in the night time oppose to the morning, especially if I have somewhere to be. I feel like the serum absorbs best into the skin overnight in order to have the best results the following morning. Plus, many sheet masks leave behind a tackiness that can lead to looking overly shiny. This is the perfect mess-free mask. This comes in more of a soft-putty texture that needs a tiny bit of hot water in order to turn into it's mask form. Once the mask is mixed to the right consistency it levels out to a near translucent form while going on-to the point where it's difficult to tell you're even wearing a mask when it dries down. Another wonderful thing about this mask is that it has a very natural, light smell that can barely be picked up by the nose, it's perfect for those who don't like a fragranced mask. Upon putting on the mask, it's extremely comfortable compared to many traditional masks, it does not dry down to a crisp or have a tacky feeling-it truly almost feels like applying warm, soft lotion to the face. I truly think that this is the perfect mask for people who are sensitive or apprehensive of how their skin handles masks. It's honestly hands-down the most gentle mask I have ever tried and whenever I have a flare-up or skin sensitivity issues this is the only mask I reach for that I know for a fact will not further irritate my skin. The total wear time for this mask was about 30 minutes but because of it's comfortability you can certainly get away with wearing it for much longer. After removing this face mask, my skin always feels instantly soft, smooth and nourished. Furthermore, this mask targets inflammation, de-puffing skin and removing impurities making it a great AM mask to reach for :). I was introduced to the Eminence brand by my cosmetologist who uses many of their products during my facials. Not every single product is a hit but this one has been hands down my favorite mask from this line. I really love that this entire brand is organic and that they make a variety of very unique skin care products. I must add that this particular mask is on the pricey side, but due to it's great consistent results and versatility I will always continue to repurchase and recommend.

@QueenMarceline  This mask sounds wonderful! I've tried a few things from this brand and have enjoyed them all - will definitely have to add this one to my list! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Shosh85 I've been liking them quite a bit so far, great and unique products. Anything you recommend for me to try out next? πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

This mask is very intriguing, I have heard very good things about snow mushrooms as an ingredient with really nice benefits for our faces πŸ’— btw your photos are stunning!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@CynthieLu Hahah, full disclose it was an image from the internet because I was too lazy to take my own photo πŸ€£ but I still wholeheartedly recommend this mask 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Lmao @QueenMarceline well you picked a good one πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline, have you tried mixing or layering Eminence masks? When I get a facial at a spa that carries Eminence products, the aesthetician always mixes a couple of masks from the brand. I think I’ve tried this mask but it was mixed with another one.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi I actually have not tried that. I think this mask is so versatile and neutral that it could likely be mixed with each and every single mask. I definitely have to try that! πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline  Sounds amazing!! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@ather Definitely worth trying out. This one is currently gearing up to be my favorite mask of 2022. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I love the pic, @QueenMarceline!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@CookieGirl1 Thanks me too! πŸ™‚ Not my picture ~full disclosure~

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline this one sounds perfect for irritated skin!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster It really is πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline Whoa that photo is stunning. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian Thank you, I think so too definitely matches the vibe of the mask. I did however find this photo on the internet, I forgot to take a photo of my mask and didn't feel like going back into my bathroom to take one πŸ€£

D is for Dust 

Spoiler
I thought the JC Anti-Dust Therapy Mask was an interesting looking mask. They are redoing my apartment hallways right now so there is a lot of dust about, although upon further research I believe the anti dust may be referring to environmental pollution, which I’m sure my skin also needs since I live in a city. 

The first part of this mask was a thick and foamy cleanser which left my skin feeling very clean though I think it’s the kind of cleanser that might strip my skin if used long term. Part 2 was the sheet mask. This was green, super soft and well saturated. The fit was a bit large but fine. It was still saturated after 30 minutes. The scent was a clean fresh scent. Part 3 was lotion; this had the same sort of clean scent and was a medium thick texture. 

overall, I would say my skin felt very clean, hydrated and brightened after using this. The only con was it took about an hour for it to fully absorb. I would use this again, though I don’t know specifically if it’s actually doing anything to protect from the environment

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Kim888  Sounds like it turned out pretty great - an hour for absorption is a bit much though!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

The package is beautiful @Kim888 πŸ€©

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Kim888  Ahhh I sometimes take things very literal. So I’m glad you figured out what it ment. I would have been confused why I need an anti dust mask. An hour wow that’s a true commitment!!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Kim888 I love the name anti dust! 🀣
